But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9

Dear Friends,

Help!! We need finances to build fences: one in Nigeria and one in Burundi. Plus we need funding for training centers in Burundi, Tanzania, Nigeria and Kenya. We need this, we need that, we need… Oh, wait a minute we already have Someone who has met our need! “And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19) Our Father in heaven has promised to meet all of our financial needs as a ministry. Therefore, what I am doing in this appeal is not appealing at all. Rather, I am sharing with you the opportunities to invest in the Kingdom of God through ICM. Is God leading you to be an answer to our prayer? We have countless opportunities and are praying that God would show us the way forward in each one. Our desire is to receive that which the Father has for us from whom he has chosen to give it. Africa is Rising! Please pray and ask if you are to be an answer to our prayer for any of the above opportunities to invest in the expansion of the Kingdom of God in Africa.

Thank you for being faithful in your commitment to the Lord and for your obedience over the past year. We are thankful that God is leading the expansion of His work and Kingdom. May He get the glory, honor, and praise for making it possible for all of us to be part of His work. If you are led to be an answer to our prayers, please fill out the information on the reverse side of this letter and mail it back to us. May you experience afresh the love and calling of God in your life! Your Partner in Worship,

Phil Walker, Ph.D., Founder and President of ICM
